Pemberton Hall is gambrel-roofed, three room plan house built in 1741. It is distinguished by Flemish bond brickwork with glazed header patterning, plastered cove cornices and extensive original mid-eighteenth century interior woodwork and detail.

The construction of Pemberton Hall was accomplished by Isaac Handy (1706-1762) and his wife Anne on land purchased from Joseph Pemberton in 1726. In addition to being a sizable landowner and merchant planter, Isaac Handy served as a Justice of the Peace and colonel in the Maryland militia as well as a member of the provincial assembly. Handy family ownership continued until 1835.

The cast end kitchen wing, constructed circa 1785, has been reconstructed on its original location.

Pemberton Hall is owned and a detailed restoration is being accomplished by The Pemberton Hall Foundation based on extensive documentary, architectural, and archeological research. Interior furnishings are based on three eighteenth century probate inventories for Pemberton Hall.

Pemberton Hall is open to the public for tours or by appointment. Membership in the non-profit Foundation is invited.
